Watson's Shortcomings
Authored by: eduo on Nov 28, '01 01:46:59PM

I liked Watson a lot, at least conceptually. I tried using it and, of course, it didn't work because I am behind a proxy/firewall. I can't understand how a tool that claims to be so MacOS X compliant can be skipping the internet services built right there in the system.

I liked the fact that development of modules is made through Cocoa, instead of some weird scripting language, that ensures not only solidity but also that not everyone and their brother will try to make modules that will only clog watson, as it hapenned with Sherlock (where noone uses plug ins any more).

I just hope it doesn't become a new pointcast. Great premise, poor handling.
